In the Maritimes, there were a few restaurants such as Granit Brew Pub and Boondocks that served an amazing seafood chowder. Seafood was freshly caught and chowder was rich, thick and creamy with big chucks of lobster, crab and shrimp and whole clams peeking through the cream. It was sometimes difficult for me to choose other items from the menu. But a fellow Maritimer gave me this insanely easy recipe for seafood chowder that is second only to the two restaurants mentioned above! You can easily substitute Haddock or other firm fish if someone has a seafood allergy and it is just as tasty! You may need to double the recipe!
